Unformatted text preview: was considered to have all its resistance in the convective film surrounding the bulb and all its capacitance in the mercury. A more detailed analysis would consider both the convective resistance surrounding the bulb and that between the bulb and mercury. In addition , the capacitance of the glass bulb would be included. Let Ai = inside area of bulb for heat transfer to mercury. Ao = outside area of bulb, for heat transfer from surrounding fluid. .m = mass of the mercury in bulb. m b = mass of glass bulb. C = heat capacitance of mercury....
